Temporary Changes/Pregnancy Update

Hello everybody!

Today is another post to explain some temporary changes on the blog for a short while.

If you are a regular reader, you will most likely be aware that I’m currently expecting my second child. It seems crazy, but my due date is now within the next few weeks! It feels like only yesterday I was updating you all on the discovery of the news and my horrific sickness which was causing issues with my blogging!

As my little man arrived early and because I'm very close to the end with this pregnancy, I am now under orders to cut back my workloads. This unfortunately means that posts will be a little less frequent for a while. 

I won’t be cutting out the posts entirely, but at some points they may be reduced to one a week. In fact it may be a tad sporadic until I can get used to “cutting back,” but I just wanted to keep you all in the loop about what is happening in regards to Beautifinous.

I assure you all that I am not going anywhere and eventually the blog will be back on track, but until that time comes I hope that you all understand the situation.

Thanks a lot for all of the views and support! The blog is going strong because of you!

Zoe. @Beautifinous

Roots & Rituals Heated Hair Towel

Roots & Rituals Heated Hair Towel is the latest release from the new, natural haircare brand that I have recently fallen in love with. It is designed to work in conjunction with the Deep Conditioning Hair Oil by providing an adjustable heat source to aid the penetration of the oil into the hair shaft.

It is a turban towel design and it can be used cable free or whilst attached to a battery.

I recently reviewed the Roots & Rituals Deep Conditioning Hair Oil and Conditioner and I absolutely fell in love with both of them! Therefore when Karishma, the founder of the company, got in touch to offer me the chance to test out the accompanying towel, I was incredibly excited to do so!

The towel is a soft material in a nice, bright purple and the electricals come packaged in their own boxes. It has two buttons on the back to attach a small piece of white elastic which will hold the towel in place once on the head (see how to use below). This version of the towel is the old version and is hand-wash only, but the new towels that are now available are machine washable.

Lush King of Skin

King of Skin by Lush is a solid bar body butter that is packed with bananas, oatmilk, avocados, essential oils and butters to help nourish and re-hydrate the skin.

Banana's have a natural emollient whilst avocado's provide nourishment for the skin. Oatmilk acts as an antihistamine and the cocoa butter helps the skin to feel really soft and conditioned.

It is shaped like a crown and is pale yellow in colour. It also has the scent of cocoa-buttery bananas!

If you are a frequent reader of the blog, you may be thinking "another Lush post!?" at this point. Admittedly I have been on a bit of a rekindled Lush hype recently, but there is more about this product and to this review than a little bit of hype.

King of Skin has been one of my favourite Lush products since the day that I first tried it a few years ago. If anybody ever asks me what Lush products to try, I always suggest this one. Therefore, today's review is going to explain exactly why.

Birchbox and Women's Health January 2015 box

Birchbox is a monthly beauty box that includes 5-6 deluxe samples of beauty and lifestyle products that are tailored to you.

You get to discover new products and test them out in the comfort of your own home with no pressure to buy the full product if you don’t like it! However, if you do enjoy it, you can purchase the full sizes from the Birchbox store with the most recent month’s brands being available with free delivery (min. £10 spend)!

Birchbox and Women's Health January 2015 box

The first Birchbox of the year is a team up with Women’s Health magazine, bringing us all a collection of products to help us refresh and even to get into shape. It’s a good idea for the first box of the year when we all start off our New Year resolutions, a large number of which will be based around improving some parts of our lives (*cough cough* we all start going to the gym and eating healthier food)!

So let’s see what I received in my Birchbox this month:

Childs Farm Hand and Body Lotion

Childs Farm Hand and Body Lotion is a natural body lotion for children that is suitable from birth and is also suitable for eczema prone skin. It contains grapefruit and organic tea tree oils to provide moisture and hydration as well as a beautiful scent to the skin.

As with all other Childs Farm products, they are free of SLS, parabens, mineral oils and artificial colours. They are also pediatrician approved.

Being a huge fan of the Childs Farm Hair and Body Wash for my little man I really wanted to give this product a try.

In fact, I recently chose the Hair and Body Wash as my top tested baby product of 2014, so how does this stand up?

Let’s find out!
